iTunes Review

Austin’s Black Joe Lewis doesn’t adulterate his mix of old-school R&B and vintage blues-rock with any 21st-century additives. Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is! is a sweat-drenched throwback to the soul shouters and party combos of the ‘60s, aimed squarely at the loins and legs. Clearly a student of James Brown and Otis Redding, Lewis constructs his sound around unstoppable grooves and accents them with blistering brass. “Gunpowder,” “Boogie,” and “Bobby Booshay” match Lewis’ hard-chopping guitar with thick bass lines and primal, skull-slamming drum work. Especially wild is “Big Booty Woman,” a trashy garage-rock number suggesting a mashup between Booker T. Jones and the Blues Magoos. “Humpin’” saunters to a beat crossing New Orleans rhythms with ‘70s-style funk. Lewis unleashes his pungent sense of humor on tracks like “Sugarfoot” and the hilarious “Get Yo S**t,” and he can sober up and smolder on legit blues tunes like “Master Sold My Baby” as well. Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is! gets down, keeps it real and leaves you begging for more.

Top Notch Funk Blues Soul

The horns and keyboards come roaring at you on every song like it's their last day on Earth - Joe sings like his hair is on fire......if there is any Otis Redding, James Brown, J. Geils, Earth Wind and Fire, Bill Withers, Prince, Tom Waits, David Lee Roth, Curtis Mayfield, etc etc etc on your iPod, you will, like me, go bananas over this disc.


i also saw them open for okkervil river and black joe lewis smoked the place. they came out and acted, sounded, and played like they owned the joint...and when they were done...i was cool with leaving before okkervil came out! i've been waiting for this album for months.

Austin-based Black Joe Lewis is a contemporary singer and guitarist with a bent toward vintage blues, soul, and R&B.
